Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish is brought to you by Koons Baltimore Ford BECAUSE I SAY IT IS.
We had an awesome Thursday on “The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction” with our Adam Jones Appreciation Day events. The highlight of Thursday was (unquestionably) this moment, when Justin from Owings Mills’ two year old Desmond came in studio at 1550 Hart Rd. to pie me after his parents donated $50 to the ALS Association as part of our modified #IceBucketChallenge.
It was awesome all around. Desmond is a huge Adam Jones fan-while I’m a huge fan of both doing good for the community AND pie. We call that a “double win”, or maybe even-this might sound crazy-a “win win” if you might.
But we were just getting started. We want to raise much more money Friday (and throughout the next week) for the Brigance Brigade-in honor of Baltimore’s favorite son O.J. Brigance and his continued fight against ALS.
Our guy Steve from Dundalk has already committed to coming by the studio Friday morning to donate at least $50 in order to pie Morning Show regular Luke Jones. That’s awesome. Our pal Simon Habtemariam is going to stop by and let me pie him because I’m going to make a cash donation myself. That’s awesome as well. Dan from Overlea is in for $50 himself and he doesn’t want to pie anyone. He just wants me to piss off Drew Forrester by replacing “Fridays With The Boss” with “Fridays With The Fab Four”. Done. And awesome for sure.
But I’m willing to get pied again if you’re willing to pony up the dough…and the filling.
If anyone else wants to stop by 1550 Hart Rd. in Towson between 6-10am, I’ll let them hit me with the pie of their choice. (The chocolate meringue Desmond went with Thursday was actually quite tasty.) You have to make a donation of AT LEAST $50 (checks made out to “Brigance Brigade” this time) to plant the confection on my face. It’s the perfect combination of showing off your Orioles support (via the pie), your Ravens support (by donating to the Brigance Brigade) and just doing good for those who need it. It seems to me like it’s even more beneficial than just dumping a cold bucket of water on your head on a summer day.
But wait-there’s more!
You might be familiar with our resident “rock star”, Zack Merrick from the band All Time Low. He’s been a part of our last few coat drives at WNST and as a Baltimore County resident himself, he’s ALWAYS been the guy to step up to the plate and ask me what he can do. There are few people who love our community and want to help more than Zack.
So Zack (who also happens to be a pretty big O’s fan) has offered to get pied as many as TWENTY times in the next week to help raise up to a thousand dollars for the Brigance Brigade.
Here’s the scoop. We’re looking for $500 worth of donations from All Time Low fans who want to deliver a pie to this good-looking face.
So…either one All Time Low fan can donate $500 to pie Zack, two can donate $250, five can donate $100, ten can donate $50 or TWENTY can donate $25. That’s the minimum donation to plant a pie in Zach’s face. We’re going to do the Pie Throw next Friday afternoon, so keep your schedule clear after 3pm to be in Towson for the event (I’m thinking 3:14 because, you know, pie).
Zack is going to match the total donated up to $500. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that means that if YOU ALL commit to donating $500 and he matches it-that’s a $1,000 donation to the Brigance Brigade and their fight against ALS-which is ABSOLUTELY more helpful than ice.
So let’s get to it, Charm City. Make your commitment. Either stop by with your pie on Friday morning to hit me in the face or let us know (via firstname.lastname@example.org) that you’re in for next Friday afternoon and let us know how much you’ll be donating to slap Zach with a pie.
Life is pretty damn good in Baltimore right now. Let’s keep making it better for everyone.
